Well this week-end I decided to recover a machine and move my proxy to my
firewall ad move everything to it while I was at it.
SO all is rosy, configured squid, grand no bother.
First I should show the old config.
box 1 : mandrake8, kernel 2.4.10, running samba/firewall/isdn dialup
box 2 : redhat 7? squid kernel 2.2.16-smp (192.168.0.1)
and workstations here...
Well, removed box2 and changed IP of box 1 to 192.168.0.1, configured dhcp
again and rebooted for the craic. Box 2 is out of the picture.
Now I can ping any workstation from box1 and get replys no bother, but if I
try to ping box1, I get connection timed out.
The workstation gets an IP address over DHCP no worries but still cannot
ping the server.
If I run "route" there is a delay before it gives my the routing table on
So I tried adding a virtual IP address for the gateway (192.168.0.254) and
this made no difference.
Ideas anyone before I wipe it and install slackware or worse - Suse.
I would rather not wipe it as there is a lot of stuff configured.
